IMG Leader Mike Hamill reports that the team is all healthy now and all is well here. Karl, Markus, and Wolf are on their way up to C1 to sleep with Kami and Karma Rita. Ang Pasang is up there today as well. Da Nuru and Mingma Tenzing are fixing a few pitches above C1 today so the climbers can go higher up tomorrow.
The main group will head to C1 tomorrow to spend one night, climb above C1 a bit, and then descend the following day. We’re going through the technical harness set-up, etc today. The weather is a bit more unstable with snow and a bit of wind for most of today. This is the second day the Sherpas have carried to C1 so it’s pretty well stocked. So far so good!
